Hyland Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
The first Chardonnay produced by Résonance. Sourced from one of the most famed and noteworthy vineyards in all of Oregon, the Hyland Vineyard Chardonnay beautifully blends classic Oregon styled Chardonnay with traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques in a seamless wine that wows upon immediate release and after aging.
After a cold and wet winter, spring brought a late flowering (end of June). However the summer was one of the warmest on record, giving very good conditions for maturation. We picked the Chardonnay grapes by hand on October 6th, with perfect weather conditions and a vibrant acidity in the fruit.
With a clear gold color, this wine express a nice aromatic complexity and the nose reveals beautiful white flowers, lemon, citrus peel, hazelnut and fresh almond notes, enhanced by fine oak flavor. The palate is well-balanced with a nice freshness, crisp acidity, and ripeness and concentration of grapes. The finish is pure and mineral.
All seafood, light poultry and vegetables or simply on its own.

about the grape +
Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
